Global Conference of
International Human Resource Management
The Pennsylvania State University, USA; 9 – 10 May 2013
With the significant rise in interest in International Human Resource Management (IHRM), the Department of Labor Studies and Employment Relations at The Pennsylvania State University is holding a two-day conference to facilitate discussion on this important topic amongst scholars from across the globe. Keynote speakers will include such experts in the IHRM field as Chris Brewster, Professor of International Human Resource Management at Henley Business School, University of Reading, UK. Call for papers will be released by 31 August 2012.
The German Journal of Research in Human Resource Management (ZfP) invites contributions for a special issue on
‘Current Issues in International HRM:
Alternative Forms of Assignments, Careers and Talent Management in a Global Context’.
These topics have gained tremendous importance due to the increasing globalization of the world economy and the war for
internationally qualified talent. This not only applies to multinational enterprises but also for small and medium sized enterprises as senior managers are challenged to attract and retain global talent. The objective of this Special Issue is to draw together scholars who are working at the forefront of this research domain. In order to be considered for publication in this Special Issue, an abstract of two pages should be sent to the editors by 15 July, 2012. The deadline for the full papers is 31 December, 2012.
